Confronting Conflict

When dealing with conflict, avoidance is not the answer. Many people think of conflict as a bad thing that is best ignored.  However, if we don’t attend to issues that cause conflict, those issues can infect and spread throughout our relationships and even into other areas of our lives. So, the first thing to realize about conflict is that we are better off if we confront it and contain it before it spreads.
